With the help of the Live Well Foundation Grant, the Central Florida Hope Center is now able to take their services to the people who need them the most – meeting them in their own backyards.

“Thanks to the Live Well Foundation, we can continue our mission to better meet and engage our neighbors in Florida, providing healing, dignity, self-worth and hope in the community,” said Scott Chevalier, the Director of The Central Florida Mobile Hope Center.
